Is This My Final Post Here? A Winter Sunset…

A Winter Sunset in Suburban Sydney, Australia

A Winter Sunset in Suburban Sydney, Australia

WordPress tells me my download space is all but used up. Some of you already know about my other blogs. They are mentioned in previous posts.

So, in the event that this is it *for here*, I thought I’d chose something appropriate: a winter sunset…

It’s only in winter that we in Sydney are treated to such wonderful colours. This is a view from a street near our home.

Enjoy!

Foggy Morning…

11 Aug
Misty morning

Misty morning

Here in Sydney it’s winter-time, and lately the morning light has been masked by fog on more than one occasion. Sometimes, a light shower or two of rain causes a similar effect.

It’s quite pretty to see the river and surrounding banks clouded with mist. At least, I think it is. 🙂

So I hope that you will appreciate this photograph taken of one such scene scene on the  Georges River in the morning.

Another Australian Scene

Australian Scene

One of the attractions of living near a natural bushland park lies in the easy accessibility of beautiful scenery. The bark of this big tree is quite delightful to the eye, and who can resist the water views?

An ideal place for recreation…

Love the Australian Scenery?

Do you love the scenery of Australia?

In this photograph one can see some wonderful old gum trees against a backdrop of the Georges River. Many beautiful parks are to be found along its banks.

Such lovely surroundings are perfect for walking. Who knows what birds, flowers or other delights one will discover?

As Darkness Begins to Fall…

The view from Dolls Point

The view from Dolls Point

Not so long ago, Ron and I had dinner in a Club at Dolls Point, in Sydney’s Botany Bay Foreshores.

The view from the window struck me as quite delightful. Through gentle light I could make out the moon. I could see the park below, and even some Ibis strutting along.

It’s a special time of a day, as darkness begins to fall…

Hello, I’m Up Here!

Look at me!

Look at me!

Hello, I’m up here!

Not in my usual spot, in the trees or on the ground. No. I’m spreading my wings and trying something new.

And now, get ready: I’m going to laugh….

Sulphur-crested Cockatoos Making their Presence Felt

10 Feb
Gathering on the shore

Gathering on the shore

I don’t know whether or not today’s cooler and overcast weather is responsible, but this morning the cockatoos certainly made their presence felt.

In a major burst of activity they swooped, squawked, flew to the highest trees, and gathered on the shore.

While I was treading water in the baths I observed much of these goings-on. And so it continued…

Such engaging and amusing characters!
